Re: What made me happy today...

Pouring down here for the last 2 days. Just hope it revives the the bushes, shrubs and flowers that have been neglected for these last 3 months. Still 28°C outside though....

@WispaRed7 you have just taught me a new English word. I had to google what a 'cygnet' is. I have a list of new words I keep from mobile word games that was inspired by @Glory1 some time ago so this will go on the list. Smiley Very Happy

 

Yesterday I saw a beautiful heron just standing in the middle of a reflecting pool near my home. Never seen one live before!

Re: What made me happy today...

I can safely say @Marjo that your English is far superior to my Finnish...😄 and possibly even my English! English is by far the most difficult language to learn even for those of us who supposedly grew up speaking it.

And even though I'm English-speaking I'm still learning new words playing the various word games. Words I never heard of before.

Never seen a live heron @Marjo that must have been beautiful.

Re: What made me happy today...

@Glory1

Are herons that rare in the uk? I see at least one in a week.o_o

 

 

Yesterday I talked to my (hopefully new) old boss when I was in Cologne by chance during a transport. I asked to get my hours certified another way like before, so I can finish my apprenticeship sooner as expected and leave my current watch. And I got it in the mail just today. Didn't expected it so fast. It made me kinda happy. Just 1 hour and 40 minutes left of the hours I need. Yay.

Aswell as having my "vacation-dog" here again until tomorrow - that makes me happy too. <3

Re: What made me happy today...

Don't know if herons are rare in the UK @ComaChameleon but I've never seen one except on TV. Could be because I live in London though I am near the Thames.

I see plenty of pidgeons and sea gulls. There are also numerous birds in the trees in the backyard but I have no idea what they are as I hear, but don't see, them.

Re: What made me happy today...

@Glory1

Always thought they're (even in Ldn) common, because of "Heron Quays" on the DLR. But never thought too deep about it

Re: What made me happy today...

You could well be right @ComaChameleon and I've just been unlucky.

Haven't been on tbe DLR in years. But I thought Heron Quays was just a name from the days when herons were there. However, you could be right. There are large parts of London I'm unfamiliar with.

Re: What made me happy today...

I had to Google what DLR means ... = ... Docklands Light Railway ... there used to be a heron on the Leeds Liverpool Canal here in Skipton late on a summer night, it stood stock still looking for fish

 

Today my son rang me, we had a lovely conversation ... he's invited me to view his American honeymoon photos on Saturday Bouncy
